  1. I just ordered a set of JPX 921 Forged 5-6 and Tours 7-PW with PX LZ 6.0. These are my first new set of irons in 15 years and are replacing my beloved MP32s. After 15 years and at 61 years of age it was time to look at newer technology and shafts. Iron play has always been a strong aspect of my game and I almost always strike the center of the club face, nonetheless due to age and less playing time I had every intention of getting a full set of forged. However the Tours just felt so much smoother, seemed to cut through the turf better and were easier to hit high, low, draw or fade that I d
  2. · What is your handicap: 14.2 · Current hybrid or utility iron shaft and flex: Callaway Big Bertha Alpha 815 20* with Fujikura Speeder 865 R flex · Closest Authorized Fujikura Dealer: Club Champion Austin, TX · What hybrid or utility iron head will you install your shaft in? Callaway Big Bertha Alpha 815 20* · Choose your Ventus HB weight/flex: Blue 7R or 7S · Do you agree to participate in an ongoing testing thread, posting reviews and photos? Yes!
  3. I am surprised that that no one else has had a positive experience with Sonartec!
  4. I recently started playing more and as my swing came back I decided to put my Sonartec GS Tour 3 wood (15*) back in my bag in place of the Callaway Big Bertha Alpha 816. Truthfully I am not sure why I ever took it out. While not as easy to hit as the Callaway, it is not unforgiving by any means and the way the ball launches off the face is incredible with a high flat penetrating flight. For the time being this is my go to 3 wood! Sonartec’s fairway metals and hybrids were some of the best clubs ever made, it’s a shame the company is no longer around.
  5. After playing MP32s for 15 years except for one brief and ill-advised experiment with a "more forgiving club" I decided I was ready for some new irons. After reading everything I could find and finally getting to hit the 921s I went through a fitting yesterday and placed an order. The funny thing is I was all set to go with all 921 F figuring I needed a little more forgiveness, but the 921 T 7 iron was so buttery soft and easy to hit low, high, fade or my preferred baby draw that I decided that it worth giving up the extra 10 yards with the F for the ability to control the ball with the T.
  6. If you bend them 1-2 degrees weak do you worry about the corresponding increase in the bounce angle? I’m trying to decide do I go with all forged and bend the lofts to make the gaps a little more spaced or trying to blend the forged and tours into a combo set.
  7. Did you make any adjustment or have any concerns about the 6* difference between the 4 921F and the 5 921T? I’m thinking a 5 and 6 921F at 24* and 27* and starting with the 6 921T at 30* to maintain an uniform spacing. I realize I’ll have two 6 irons, but the 921F at 27* is the same loft as the 921T 5 iron.
  8. I am currently still playing my MP32s but I am looking forward to demoing the JPX921s. I’m thinking about getting a combo set of the JPX921 forged and tours. My thought is get a JPX921F 5 and 6 iron (24* and 27*) respectively, which mimic the lofts of the JPX921T 4 and 5 irons, and the 6-PW (30*-46*) Tours to maintain consistent gaps. The other way would be the JPX921F 5, 6, 7 (24*, 27*, 30 (31* bent 1* weak) which mimic the lofts of the JPX921T 4, 5, and 6 irons, and JPX921T 7-PW (34*-46*) again to maintain consistent gaps. This would result in a set with the same lofts as my current MP32
  9. Sonartec made great fairway metals and hybrids. I just recently retired both my Sonartec GS Tour 3 wood and MD hybrid in favor of newer technology.
  10. I was all set to upgrade from my 32s to MP-25s about a month ago, only to have my club pro call me to inform me that Mizuno had discontinued production and they did not even have enough heads available to build a 4-PW set. I considered ordering the JPX-900 Tours, but decided to keep playing my 32s and wait and see what Mizuno was releasing to replace the 25s. Hopefully in September I'll get a chance to see and hit the 18s. I may just keep my 32s as they are or at least see about getting new shafts.
  11. The Lamkin Utx is the only grip I have used for the last few years and I don't plan to switch anytime in the near future. In fact, a couple of times of year Lamkin has a sale buy 2 get one free and I have stocked up so I have a supply for the next couple of years. I have been burned in the past when I found a grip I liked and then it wold be discontinued and I would have to begin the process all over again.
